Hi Don

I recomend you try this first of all.

Try disconnecting the positive battery + & negative - terminals.

Turn the ignition key several times to erase the computers memory.

Reconect the battery + terminal and then - and start the car.

Your fault code, will hopefully not return.

Good Luck !

A wild guess - your crank speed sensor. But, with this level of malfunction, pull the codes. Buy a code reader (EOBD/OBD) from Ebay or go to a Jaguar dealer or any decent engine diagnostic center and they will tell you what is malfunctioning. The codes don't tell all the story, they just tell you what is out of tolerance - there could be a lot of things out just because one component is malfunctioning, so you need someone who has expertise with this engine.

Cruze control dosen't work


First does the light on the switch on the console light up? It's behind the gearshift, not on the dash or steering wheel. If not, check your fuse box then check the switch. If it lights up, then your cruise control is also connected through your brake light switch. I suggest renewing it before proceeding further. If it still doesn't work, there is a vacuum "T" on the passenger side of the throttle body, (US car that is), near your fuel rail and regulator. It feeds the regulator and the cruise control vacuum servo's in back of the front passenger side wheel well. Check this "T" for leaks. Make sure the vacuum servo (the big shiny chrome one on top of the throttle body, is connected. The error is probably electrical, not vacuum since it's bringing up a light on the dash.

Does anyone know anything about the error message on the message center says' no DSC available' it flashes amber on message board in my XK8 thanks in advance. Ryan


It could be the brake pedal switch, it often occurs it fails in our kitty. If your car (as mine) is equipped with a cruise control, this could be associated with the msg "cruise control not available" too (or something similar).
In this case you can fix (or change) that switch. The worst is to dismount it... ;-)

Good chance

After having my 2006 santa fe serviced at 60000 miles, my cruise control doesn't work. I had it lubed, radiator flush, oil change, brakes checked, timing belt replaced, water pump replaced.


Try checking all of your rear brake lights to see if they are working.If you have a burned out bulb the control cannot complete the circuit and the cruise will not work. Dont forget the third brake light sometimes have more than one bulb in them so check closely to make sure that all bulbs are good.
